Oppenheimer Sex Scene Only Refers to Sanskrit Text and Doesn’t Mention Bhagavad Gita

<p>A portion of social media users took issue with a scene in Christopher Nolan’s latest film, Oppenheimer, where the title character appears to engage in sexual activity while reading passages from an ancient Sanskrit text. They claimed the passages came from the Bhagavad Gita and demanded that the scene be cut from the movie.</p>
<p>Contrary to what has been claimed, the film makes no specific reference of the Bhagavad Gita since the version made available in India is different from the one made available elsewhere. According to reports, the sequence had already been modified before it was submitted for certification to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).<img decoding=”async” loading=”lazy” class=”alignnone wp-image-94643″ src=”×422.png” alt=”” width=”1447″ height=”814″ srcset=”×422.png 750w,×576.png 1024w,×432.png 768w,×220.png 390w,×84.png 150w, 1200w” sizes=”(max-width: 1447px) 100vw, 1447px” /></p>
<p>Sanskrit text is brought up in the argumentative scene’s debate, however the Bhagavad Gita is not mentioned by the characters, who are shown debating other works.</p>
<p>A 180-minute long expansive biographical film titled Oppenheimer about the eponymous American theoretical physicist had a successful Friday opening in India and is said to have made close to Rs 56 crore at the box office in only four days. The movie has made over USD 174 million worldwide.</p>
<p>The man known as “the father of the atom bomb,” J. Robert Oppenheimer, was reported to have studied Sanskrit and been inspired by the Bhagavad Gita. The scientist claimed in an interview that the first thing that crossed his mind when he saw the first nuclear bomb explode on July 16, 1945, was a line from an old Hindu book that read, “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of world.”</p>
<p>While being asked to recite a passage from what looks to be a Sanskrit book, whose title or cover is not visible, psychologist Jean Tatler (Florence Pugh) invites Oppenheimer (Cillian Murphy), who plays Oppenheimer, to have sex with her.</p>
<p>Tatler insists that Oppenheimer read the line she is pointing to, and the bewildered scientist does so. It begins, “Now, I am become Death, destroyer of the world.”</p>
<p>The CBFC reportedly assigned the movie a U/A grade, designating it as appropriate for people over the age of 13, after Universal Pictures trimmed several parts from the film to make it shorter.</p>
<p>The movie’s worldwide distribution in the US was granted a “R” classification because of all the nastiness and graphic intimate moments.</p>
<p>However, the director willingly cut out any moments with infrequent nudity and explicit material before submitting the movie to the CBFC.</p>
